How do you make sure your English paper pieced quilt has a nice edge that’s easy to trim and bind?
I used to get folded over bits of fabric and little holes but after a while I found an easy way to get a nice straight 1/4″ edge. I simply add a 1/4″ to the template and cut it out. I always cut the seam allowance at a 90º angle.
When I wrap the fabric around the papers I leave that edge unwrapped and trim the fabric flush with the paper.
Then I sew the pieces together with my usual whipstitch and end up with a wonderfully flat edge that is easy to bind without losing any of my points.
I hope that helps.
